F#@k, Marry, Kill Otome Edition – Kissed by the Baddest Bidder

Hey Blerdy Tribe, here’s another healthy dose of quality content here on Blerdy Otome! Another edition of Fuck, Marry, Kill: Otome Edition hot off the presses for your reading pleasure! For those of you that didn’t play this game as a kid, the basic premise is this:

One person poses three names of people known to someone else (either people known in their personal lives or of celebrities). The other person then has to decide which of the three they would kiss (or fuck, in more mature versions of the game… like this one), which one they would marry, and which one they would kill.

The rules~

I’m cutting the middle man and just using the love interest lineup from otome games to answer three sacred, age old questions—Which otome guy would I fuck? Which otome guy would I marry? Which otome guy would I kill? This time around I’m looking at the boys of Kissed by the Baddest Bidder!

Throwbacks to Bring Back: Old Games I’d Love to See Get a Re-Release

During one of my streams I got to talking about some of my fave “older” games–as I am want to do from time to time. While reminiscing about the good old days I realized that a lot of great games are tethered to outdated consoles and thus inaccessible to new players… and if you ask me that’s a TRAGEDY! There are some amazing games that I may never get to play again because there just isn’t a platform to play them on and that got me thinking about some of the older games I’d love to see get a re-release *cough* Switch port *cough*, heck I’d even settle for a PC port–anything just to get the chance to play them again. So, here’s that list… you’re welcome!

Also big thanks to wind_drops from the Discord server for coming up with the amazing title!
